When the Cat's Away...

So, when the two year old got up from his nap this afternoon, I should have been watching more carefully. His sister had made cookies earlier, and left the beater too close to the edge of the counter. Hmm. I thought it was awfully quiet...

So, being the nice mama that I am, I decided to indulge him. Instead of taking away the ill gotten gain, we put a bib on him and contained him in a high chair.

And he didn't stop until he had every last crumb. Impressive. I won't even have to rinse it before it goes in the dishwasher ;)

As for my sewing progress, there has been plenty... just not what I planned. I decided last night that I was too tired to do much cleaning in the sewing room. And my sweet husband had commandeered the computer to look at pictures from the Hill Climb. His cousin's son did really well - he won the semi-pro king of the hill division, and we found a website with wonderful professional pictures taken from the top of the hill. So without the computer, I couldn't refer to the measurements of the Hoohobbers bag, so, no pattern drafting either.

No problem. That's why I have several projects going at once. I went out to the sewing room and found the few pieces of red fabric scraps I have that will work in the hexagon quilt and cut a few squares. Despite having millions of pieces of fabric, I really don't have much cotton. I always sewed clothes before, so my collection is centered around clothing fabrics - stretchy stuff, and lots of home dec fabrics too. I also have an impressive collection of western fabrics, but that isn't the look I'm going for here. So, poor me. I'll probably have to buy another fat quarter or two... or three ;)

Anyway, back inside, where we have heat... I made up another 15 hexagons before deciding that I really ought to put it down and make some progress on my baby afghan. I put about 2 hours into the afghan, and really made a lot of progress. I'm moving right along on both of those projects because I enjoy them both, and they are both easy to work on while the kids nap, or after they leave. Perfect and relaxing! Just my sort of project. No stress.
